Af­ter a year of mar­ket anal­y­sis and with an in­vest­ment of Nu 2.5mn, a team of grad­u­ates with back­ground in agri­cul­ture and civil en­gi­neer­ing started sell­ing lo­cal and im­ported veg­eta­bles and fruits on­line.

Through their web­site, Bhutan Smart Shop (BSS), it al­ready caters to about 1,000 buy­ers and two ho­tels in Thim­phu. Af­ter an en­cour­ag­ing re­sponse from the buy­ers dur­ing their ini­tial dis­tri­bu­tion of veg­eta­bles in Pamt­sho, Jung­shina and Taba, the team went into full op­er­a­tion on June 2.

Once the or­der reaches 50, the de­liv­ery is reached twice a day with no ship­ping charges ap­plied while de­liv­er­ing the or­ders.
